This Comic's Cast:

So we're going with the Castlevania version, with a stony glare. Good to note.

I was just being deliberately dickish with the vocab rules here, since plainly the narrator has a large vocab. He should have known the term.

But then, I come back to King's Quest, with its one section of the game where you have to throw water from a bucket on a dragon. It doesn't know "throw", it doesn't know "pour". It does, however, know "douse". The hell?
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
